On 17th February, a new semester will begin. About 370 of international students will start their education at the University of Warsaw. They came here for short-term Erasmus+ and other international exchange programmes. The UW International Relations Office organised a special meeting for them on 12th February.

Students could learn about how to use USOS or University Library’s resources, what formalities should be met to obtain a student card, as well as whom to ask for help in case of psychological, health and other problems.


The meeting was a part of the orientation week dedicated to students from 45 countries. During a whole orientation week, students participate in various meetings, visit the UW Main Campus, get acquainted with the materials about the university, Warsaw and Poland. Employees from the university units, e.g. the International Relations Office, Polonicum, University Library, Erasmus Student Network, UW Student Union offer assistance. UW students are also engaged in the orientation week, sharing their knowledge on accommodation at UW under the Mentor Programme.
